Food & environment

Trust your product quality Growing populations increase the need for a better handling of our earth’s resources. The Epsilon 4, an energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer, is a powerful analytical tool to obtain useful elemental information to maximize crop growth and ensure product and environmental safety. The latest advances in excitation and detection technologies in Epsilon 4 open possibilities for challenging applications that are traditionally performed by ICP and AAS. Switching from ICP to EDXRF significantly reduces the use of consumables, utilities and time .

Lubricating oils

Value beyond compliance Speeding up engine test while maintaining product quality are essential industry requirement for producers of lubricating oils. Compliance to international test methods like ISO and ASTM is an essential industry requirement for elemental analysis of lubricating oils. For the Epsilon 4 this mandated compliancy is merely the starting point, but where the instrument really shines is the additional value it brings for many other analytical tasks in the production of lubricating oils. For example: • reduce errors of production by positive material identification • faster and more accurate dosage of expensive additives • supporting optimal blending efficiency of base oils and additives. All analyses performed by Epsilon 4 comply with the latest test methods and norms, like ASTM D7751 and ASTM D6481.

Fast and accurate at-line elemental analysis

Built on the experience and success of the proven Epsilon 3 range of XRF spectrometers, the Epsilon 4 is a multi-functional instrument for any industry segment needing elemental analysis from fluorine (F) to americium (Am) in areas from R&D through to process control. Combining the latest excitation and detection technologies with mature software and smart design, the analytical performance of Epsilon 4 approaches that of more powerful and floor-standing XRF spectrometers. Due to its low infrastructural requirements, Epsilon 4 can be placed next to the production line anywhere in your process. Its high performance enables most applications to be operated at ambient conditions, reducing costs for helium or vacuum maintenance.
